It’s true—no one knows you like your sister. Brothers can be protective or annoying depending on their place in the birth order, but sisters, regardless of the age difference, are usually close forever. And competitive. And always ready to threaten you with the real story of how your mom’s care got dented if they don’t get their way.
That said, they’re also your biggest fan, your most vocal supporter and they always have your back. Even born competitors like Venus and Serena Williams have the sister bond to contend with. Venus has said, “I always like to win. I’m the big sister. I want to make sure she has everything, even if I don’t have anything.” If you have a sister, you may be familiar with a few of these things you can only sisters can get away with.
1. You can raid her closet without asking.
Even in the tightest sister bond, there are limits of course. You can’t wear anything with the tag still on it. You must clean it after wearing and if you tear, stain or lose it, you have to replace it. It’s sneaky, but if you can encourage her to buy an item that flatters you, go for it.
